Tag questions in English

RIGHT They live in Chicago, right?
RIGHT They live in Chicago, don’t they?
WRONG They live in Chicago, isn’t it?
WRONG They live in Chicago, no?
We have mentioned in previous posts that, unfortunately, you can’t just put no?at the end of the sentence in English. Sorry!
So what can you do?
  1. Learn tag questions: do you? have they? will he? But these are tricky and if you don’t need to learn them for an exam, frankly, don’t bother.
  2. Some people solve this problem by saying right? or yeah? at the end of the sentence. Just don’t do it too much because it can be irritating.
